"Porrada... the perfect namesake for this hard-hitting foursome from Pittsburgh, PA. Their music WILL kick your ass! Porrada's pounding drums, booming basslines, crunching guitars, and aggressive vocals, blend to form an original style that's filled with both raw power and melody. Originally formed as Cutthroat in 1996, they reformed in 2002 as Porrada. Influenced by a diverse array of bands such as Faith No More, Helmet, Slayer, BioHazard, Nirvana, Sick of it All, and Sepultura, just to name a few the foursome set out to mix the best elements of the many genres of metal, punk, and hard rock to form a sound all their own. Although they've been playing out for quite some time, Porrada has been hitting the club and bar scene in the Pittsburgh and surrounding area harder than ever over the past year. With their sets of powerful originals and high-energy performances, Porrada continues to impress audiences at every turn, and has built a strong local following.
